Imagine a community where all children have the equal opportunity to learn, where anyone can start a business if they have the initiative, and where communities have thriving business districts that provide unique and innovative products and services. This is the vision of WEDI. Our mission is to empower economically disadvantaged people in Buffalo, NY, with a primary focus on the West Side community. We believe that empowered people can transform their community. The Westminster Presbyterian Church founded WEDI in 2006 to improve the quality of life for the residents of Buffalo’s West Side. In 2015, WEDI expanded its activity to the City of Buffalo. WEDI reduces barriers to success and opportunity through economic development, community building, and education.
